JP Morgan adds to beta strategies team


JP Morgan Asset Management has appointed Alistair Lowe as managing director and senior portfolio manager, Quantitative Beta Strategies (QBS). 

In this new role, Lowe (pictured), will oversee QBS’s team of alternative beta and quantitative equity portfolio managers in New York. He reports to Yazann Romahi, Chief Investment Officer of Quantitative Beta Strategies, and will be based in New York. 
Prior to joining JP Morgan, Lowe was an independent consultant advising asset managers and RIAs in asset allocation and portfolio construction. Previously he was a senior advisor to the investment committee at the quantitative liquid alternatives manager AlphaSimplex. Lowe spent the bulk of his career at State Street Global Advisors, most recently as Chief Investment Officer of the firm’s Global Equities business, and led a team of more than 100 professionals, including a 30-person team which conducted quantitative research for all asset classes.    
“As we look to further build out our portfolio management capabilities, we are pleased to add an experienced investor with over three decades of highly specialised experience in quantitative investing,” says Romahi. 
“We look forward to benefitting from Alistair’s perspective and adding his unique skill set to our team of talented quant managers,” says Michael Camacho, Head of Beta Strategies for JP Morgan Asset Management. “This is a growth business for JP Morgan Asset Management, and this addition will help us accommodate the continued expansion of our offering.” 
JP Morgan’s Quantitative Beta Strategies team is a critical component of its Beta Strategies business, which drives innovation through leading, quantitative research capabilities in factor-based investing.  In the past year, QBS has launched 16 new products and doubled assets under management.
